Hi everyone please find attached two draft letters, one to the CEO of BT and the other to our MP regarding broadband. There is also an explanation letter about where we are with the issue of slow broadband. I would urge all of you who have an interest in this, and even those that don't to take a very short time to send these letters (you can email your MP for ease). If our MP receives lots of individual letters he cannot ignore us or fob us off, and if he does you have the power of a vote next year?? Susan Smith has kindly taken a lot of her time to get this far so surely we can all take 10 minutes to send a letter and or an email.
Thank you for your anticipated support.

Play area at the Village Hall
Since making the little play area at the back of the village Hall for a lifestyle project two years ago, the Waddingtons have moved away leaving Amy Frankish (and Mum and Dad!) the task of upkeep. You might have noticed that nature is trying to claim the area back so we wondered if anyone would be able to come and help us get it looking smart again. We thought if a group of us could meet there at about 10am on Saturday 21st June that many hands might make light work (children welcome too, we'll take it in turns to keep an eye on). We would love to be able to keep it nice and nettle free for the younger ones in the village, so please bring along gardening gloves, strimmers, garden tools, anything that might make it look nicer etc.
Many thanks

Sound system
Several of you have commented on the 'fuzziness' of the sound system, particularly when there is a commentary. As a result the committee is hoping to replace the existing sound system to match the high quality of the projector.

Turf dancing.
To finally finish off the VH drive project, ROLAWN kindly donated a pallet of high quality turf on Friday 23rd May. The next morning a merry band of landscape gardeners [!?]arrived with various garden tools & wheelbarrows. One team tackled the area near the little play area, tackling roots & wire in their desire to achieve a perfect finish, with copious amounts of raking! The other team set to on the edge of the new gravel area. This was very technical, due to the curve of the kerbstones. After much, measure twice, cut once" discussions & infilling of every sort of triangle you could think of, the task was completed. If you have ever laid turf, you will know that it has to be compacted down, so with great enthusiasm [& energy may I say for men of their age!!]The local turf dancers gave it their all. The dance obviously worked, as immediately the heavens opened & poured upon our turf. At the time of going to press it has rained every day since, which is marvelous for new turf, even though we would rather be sat in the sun.
Seriously though, many thanks indeed to all of you who came along on your precious Saturday morning to help. It is much appreciated by the Village Hall Committee + we hope that everybody approves of the enhancement of the area. If you haven't visited the Hall recently, take a stroll down the new drive & have a look.

Cricket - Riccall v Everingham
We played our first round match in the Canon Hedley cup against Riccall on Friday May 16th.  Riccall batted first, and despite some excellent bowling and some spectacular fielding from Dan Litherland, their openers wasted no time in finding the boundary a bit too often for our liking.  Matt Smith, Trevor Woods and Dan Elliot all took wickets, but Riccall finished on 103 after 20 overs, and that gave us a bit of a mountain to climb.  We started slowly and lost a couple of early wickets.  Matt Smith, Tim Stephenson and Will Wilson were top scorers, but we ended all out for 65 and repaired to Bubwith's very pleasant clubhouse to drown our sorrows.
Next up will be either Escrick or Kelfield in June.  Report to follow in next month's newsletter.

1st Melbourne Cubs and the Melbourne Scout Hut Committee urgently require your help.
To keep this valuable community group going we are appealing for leaders, assistant leaders, committee members and parent / adult helpers.
If help is not found this term then the group may have to close. This would be most unfortunate for the Cubs, the community and local children.  

Cubs (8-10½ years) take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.
Cubs meet every Thursday at Melbourne Scout Hut 6.45pm - 8.15pm. Boys and girls are welcome. There are currently 24 Cubs in the group. Our leader needs assistant leaders and parent / adult helpers to run the group ASAP. The more leaders the better as the role can be shared. The committee meet bi-monthly to plan activities for the group, fund raising, finances etc.
For more info please contact Ali Thompson 01430 861524 or email:

Car 'Open Day'
Thank you to everyone who came along to wander round the display of old and interesting vehicles, on a day of sunshine and showers at Southfield Farm early in May. The barbecue, tea and cakes raised almost £300 in donations, with £30 going to the Village Hall and £264.32 to St Everilda's Clock Restoration Fund - and grateful thanks go to Bryn and Hilary, as well as Pete and Tine, for all their hard work before, during and after the event.  

Everingham and Harswell Parish Council
Minutes of the meeting held on 14 May 2014in the Village Hall, Everingham.
  1. Present: Councillors Tom Featherby (Chairman); Marcia Call; Patricia Coole; Rachel Glossop; Bryn James; and Alison Thompson. Clerk to the Council.
  2. Councillor Edward Pettifer tendered his apologies.
  3. Matters arising:
    1. Hargreaves continues to be the main recycling contractor and seems to be the principal cause of residents' concerns. Assessments made by Councillors seem to show that the frequency of Hargreaves HGVs has diminished in recent months. Councillors concluded that this might be due to the peak period for garden waste has yet to be reached. Therefore, Councillors decided that further representations to ERYC are to be put in abeyance until more positive and accurate data on vehicles are available.
Councillors continue to think that a flashing speed-monitoring device could be of value but since ERYC has rejected the Council's earlier request other avenues are to be explored. It was agreed that an approach be made to the local police liaison officer with a view to having sessions where a hand-held speed recorder can be used to monitor the speed of HGVs. AT will try to effect such an arrangement and report any appropriate progress.
Councillors feel the support of the Community Partnership network will be beneficial. Its meetings are held every six or so weeks in village facilities around the County and the easiest way to obtain information on assistance will be for a Councillor to attend a meeting and raise the issue, or any other which is felt appropriate to the parish. The minutes of the most recent Partnership meeting is to be circulated by AS.
    1. BT will send to AT the materials needed to renovate the telephone box.
    2. ERYC Passenger Services has informed AS and AT that ownership of the 'bus shelter is vested in the Parish Council. Further information is awaited.
    3. Councillors decided to place issue of the pothole problem along Thorpe le Street Road in abeyance until HGV traffic flow is assessed once again.
    4. TF continues to liaise with Rob Brown at ERYC Highways Department regarding the location and direction of culverts in Everingham.
    5. A bridge along pathway 8 needs attention. RG will forward details to AS.
    6. PC and BJ accompanied ERYC Streetscene officers during their visit to the parishes on 17 April. Their schedule of work is to be sent to all Councillors. 
    7. ERYC has taken no action to mitigate flooding dangers since the March meeting. However, Councillors are satisfied with the work done at the pumping station and with work to renew ditches. AS will thank ERYC.
    8. The redundant power pole on Thorpe le Street Road is still in place. There has been a complaint about its unsightly replacement and questions as to the need for planning permission for its location to be granted by ERYC. AS has written to Northern PowerGrid and awaits a reply.
    9. No further action will be taken for the present in respect of the alleged location plans for a wind turbine near Everingham Hall.
    10. The installation of a defibrillator at the Village Hall will be discussed again at the next meeting.
  1. Emergency Plan:
    1. AS has not yet summarised details of the Emergency Plan to residents.
    2. Rachel Glossop has become the co-ordinator of the Committee.
    3. BJ will confirm to HEPS that a successful appraisal of the Emergency Plan was completed and request details of training courses held by HEPS.
  2. Finance:
    1. The year-end accounts were approved. The resolution was proposed by MC and seconded by RG. They were signed by TF. The balance carried forward was £1921.76. The accounts can be seen on the Notice Board.
    2. The yearly precept of £4000 has been paid and the bank balance is £5526.
  3. Planning:
    1. ERYC has approved the modified application of Mrs. Angela Payne and that for Wot an Egg Company's second chicken shed on Half Acres Lane.
    2. A question was raised about the legality of a very large shed in the grounds of Elerker House. AS was asked to investigate the matter since the house is in the bounds of the Conservation Area.
    3. Councillors discussed the layout and operation of the Everingham Stud run by Ms. L Shuttleworth and questioned whether she is complying with the terms of her planning approval. It was agreed they will examine planning approval documents prior to the next meeting when further discussions will take place. AS will seek clarification from ERYC Enforcement Officers.
    4. Councillors were asked by TF to pass-on planning application paperwork more speedily to ensure that Councillor's comments can be sent to ERYC within the time period specified.
  4. Date of next meeting:
    1. The next meeting will be in the Village Hall at 19h30 on 09 July 2014. Electors can submit questions, comments or items for discussion at the meeting by contacting the Clerk within 14 days of the meeting.
